Headphones and Hearing Loss


My father has significant hearing loss (he's 94). He has always loved music but hasn't been listening much these days.

Could anyone recommend the best headphones for such a person?

Any thought greatly appreciated!
Many thanks for these responses. I'm going to give the momentum a try. If they are not satisfactory for him, I'll probably take them for myself!

ZD542--yes, I'm not sure the answer to that, but I think some with hearing aids (like my dad) can use over ear headphones for listening.

I'll report back after he uses them a bit, in case others have similar questions!
I was thinking that hearing aids may need to be calibrated in some way. So, for example, if they are setup for an average distance of 10ft for normal conversation, putting headphones on may overload the hearing aids. Kind of like if you have too much gain on a phono preamp.
